DescriptionThis is a climb located 2 gullies west of The Shroud up another long gully. There are a number of ice bits that form here. This is probably the most reliable of the bits. Please, beware of avalanche conditions. Expect an aerobic approach.
Ascend this gully to a fork above. At the Y is a thin mixed climb, that often doesn't touch down. To the left is an easier WI3 pitch, name Unnamed Gully on this website. Round The Corner is up and right.
P1. A nice pillar, sometimes with funky, funky ice. Snapped off a pick in cold, cold conditions. 70 feet or so. 2 bolt anchors at the top of the 1st pitch, although they can be buried in the ice/snow.
P2. Above this 1st pitch lies another WI3 pitch. You can walk off left for the 2nd pitch back to the top of P1.
Aesthetic setting though you still see/hear I-70.
Note, at least one good climber has been taken on this climb from an avalanche.
